Vegan flips out after restaurant refused to discount special pasta

Vegan flips out after restaurant refused to discount special pasta | Becoming Vegan Recipes and Advice | Scoop.it

A bill dispute over a custom vegan meal and a few dollars ended up with the police and the credit card companies involved.

 

Jack Litsky and his wife Toby decided to become vegans when they turned 50 last year for health reasons, and to stick to their meat-and-dairy-free diet, they often bring their own whole grain pasta to restaurants when dining out.

But the Litskys' picky preferences ended up getting them into a price dispute with a restaurant owner, even involving the police.

Raising Vegan Kids | Feeding Children a Vegan Diet

Eleven-year-old Tyler Parker-Rollins says being vegan isn't always easy. But he says it's also "fun" and that he plans to be one "forever."


The Parker-Rollins kids, growing up in Lutherville, are among a growing number of children whose parents are raising them vegan, without any of the milk or meat conventionally considered part of a growing child's diet.

 

"People might ask how could a parent subject growing children to such a restrictive diet?" she says. "But as long as parents are on top of what vitamins and minerals their kids aren't going to get and replacing them, a child is not going to be malnourished." says  Adina Fradkin, a clinical dietitian at Greater Baltimore Medical Center

Tom Ato's insight:

Our kids are Vegan-ish.  They are 11 and 15.  Both of them started the same day we did. Feb 1st 2013. We have educated them on why we are choosing a vegan lifestyle.  Then we let them choose. You have to explain to kids "why" and give them a choice IMHO.  I'm not sure how I wouldve approached this if I was vegan before they were born.  What is your opinion on raising Vegan Kids?

Creamy Nutmeg Broccoli Soup | A Vegan Metabolism Booster

Creamy Nutmeg Broccoli Soup | A Vegan Metabolism Booster | Becoming Vegan Recipes and Advice | Scoop.it

Soup nourishes the body, especially when it's chock-full of metabolism-boosting, detoxifying nutrients like this creamy vegan broccoli soup. The recipe is part of the postdetox maintenance mode from the new book 1 Pound a Day: The Martha's Vineyard Diet Detox and Plan for a Lifetime of Healthy Eating, and each of the soup's components add an important benefit. The calcium and vitamin C in broccoli, for example, helps you burn more calories, while nutmeg and cayenne help boost your immunity, protect against disease, and increase your metabolism. The high fiber content makes this soup a good option when you want to detox; the garlic in the soup helps flush out toxins from your body as well. This tasty and creamy soup makes a hearty main when paired with whole grain bread or a salad; read on for the recipe.

This looks pretty Tasty. Addig this to my Recipes to try

Is Your Medicine Vegan? Probably Not - NPR (blog) | Becoming Vegan Recipes and Advice | Scoop.it

Is Your Medicine Vegan? Probably Not Proctor and Thomsen, who've been vegan since 2000 and 1990, respectively, are willing to avoid animal products on ethical grounds at nearly all costs.

 

"Medicine is one of the more difficult products for vegans to avoid, especially if something is life-threatening," Proctor tells Shots. "How far are you prepared to go for your own convictions?"

Tom Ato's insight:

Im not a big fan of Western Medicine anyways.  But I will be thinking a bit more about what I take next time I need any medicine.
